The suspended Columbia University student Harrison David, 20, plead guilty to selling cocaine to an undercover officer as part of a plea deal. As part of the deal, David is suppose to spend six months in jail, however he will probably only spend 3 1/2 months behind bars at Rikers due to time served and good behavior, according to his attorney, Matthew Myers.
David admitted he sold powdered cocaine to an undercover police officer on Aug. 21, 2010. He pleaded guilty Tuesday to criminal sale of a controlled substance, a felony. The felony charge will likely have him expelled from Columbia.
“He has huge regrets about it because now he’s blown an Ivy League education,” Myers said, adding, “His family is extremely upset.”
Only 3 months in jail? That’s it? Your thoughts?
